Good Informations, easy booking, in time.

Overall I had a good experience, however the pick up location was wrong. When I entered it into Google maps it brought me to somewhere which was 10mins away from the actual location, even the co-ordinates were wrong

Check-in and Pick-location was not the one sent in the email/e-ticket. It was a 10 minute ride away near Si Wichai 16. Other than this misinformation everything was well organised.
